Robots Don't Exist


Published 2004


Machinista 04 Entry - Full Screen Robovision.

An experimental music video made using 'data bending'
techniques; 1950's footage of an idealised robot home servent was edited as raw text data to create more or less controlled corruption effects. Other footage was created by unorthodox morphing.The audio was produced using a Nintendo Game Boy and a circuit-bent Speak & Spell. Do not adjust your codec.

Hmmm if anyone's having trouble with the sync on this (as the previous reviewer seems to be?) you could try my own page for the film here:

Trippy techno-noise fusion mashup. The music portion, using a modified Speak 'n Spell and 8-bit game samples is compelling in an abstract way. The video portion using digital static and effect to cut up an 1940s and 1950s era robot footage is a great way of deconstructing the footage. My main complaint is the music and video are not synched together. In an attempt to get just about every open-source video and music format out there, the two are unfortunately seperated out. I'd rather see at least a mixed version for one of just so it'd be easy to experience it as the whole it is.
